    : I was particularly interested in reading about the "desk" job that he's going to have! Homeland Security seems like a fairly sensitive area to put someone in who is under investigation for desertion, or whatever they're calling it these days!

    So you selectively support the constitutional rights of Americans based on your opinion of presidential administrations. You do not support democracy. I know that there are those of you out there. It's good to know who you are.

    Did you apply for the job?

    Do they pay you what you agreed to?

    If you don't like your employer, go somewhere else?

    Oh, wait a minute, I thought I was talking about a privately held company. Never mind, complain as much as you want.

    Absolutely true, which is why acting as Dana has that his reinstatement to active duty is some kind of sign that he's not going to be charged with AWOL or that "pundits" (because apparently fellow soldiers are "pundits“) we're wrong. The investigation is on going, but until it's dropped or action taken Bergdahl is presumed innocent....but is not cleared of potential wrong doing as of yet.

    It's wrong to suggest he's definitely a deserter, it's also wrong to act as if this somehow proves otherwise as well

    As to Dana's pathetic attempt to debate via slogan, he should refer to the daily shows well said condemnation of that attitude. Justifying the trade simply because "it's the American way" is a laughable, hollow, ridiculous argument that sounds wonderful for the bumper of his pickup truck but hardly has any legitimate substance to it

    Dana's reference to pundits was not the soldiers who accused him, but those pundits who made a big deal out of it. To the best of my knowledge, the army investigation is still ongoing(and contrary to what some think, yes, the army is in his chain of command). Until the investigation is done, or at least far enough along to make a firm accusation of wrongdoing, he is still a soldier, and still going to be treated as such. That means putting him back to work is not surprising, nor is it some kind of conspiracy. Those suggestions are just stupid.

    Who wants to bet that Obama awards Bergdahl with the POW Medal ?
    my hope is the investigation finds him to be deserving of it

    The U.S. Army hasn't said that this case is closed yet.

    Nobody in this thread has made any such suggestion. It is curious that the only focus you and others have is to complain about the non existent call to find Bergdahl guilty without his day in court. Which has not occurred in this thread. So while you are off tilting at strawmen and windmills? Dana referenced his inability to grasp what the "firestorm" was all about. Professing utter ignorance about it all, yet ironically claiming to be aware of what the punditry had to say about the matter. So danarhea actually knows what the firestorm is all about, he just does not mind acting like an ignorant boob about it all. OK. Except he did that while also referencing some fictional "hiking" hokum as a reason why the investigation was supposed (in Dana's mind) to be over. Now that was a stupid suggestion and that was actually made! Essentially Danarhea is just striking a purposefully ignorant pose for the sake of, well.........what else? An internet argument. A really stupid one, but then I guess his mind had taken a hike when he started the thread without actually reading his own article.

So why the firestorm over the trade to get him back? We don't leave our own in the hands of the enemy, whether or not they were AWOL, but it seems that some here were very willing to do that, whether or not Bergdahl had been AWOL or not. What the hell is happening to us if we are willing to throw our soldiers into the garbage over allegations, even before an investigation shows the evidence was not enough to put Bergdahl on trial? So we traded 5 Taliban members for Bergdahl - I call that a good trade. Bergdahl is one of ours, and we don't leave ours behind to rot on the battlefield, or in the prisons of the enemy. That is the American way.

    Article is here.
    you seem to be under the impression that the investigation is over ,bro.... believe me, it's not...

    this part of the article made me laugh though
    As he returns to active duty, he will live in barracks and will have two soldiers assigned to help him during the transition,
    those assigned soldiers aren't there to "help him during the transition"... those are guards

    the LA times did a piece on him returning to active duty as well.... in that article they stated he will "live in the NCO barracks and work with other soldiers who are providing leadership and guidance"

    that dude is being guarded, no doubt about it...PAO's ( public affairs officers) rarely, if ever, deviate from SOP


    in any event, he is still looking at giving lots and lots of testimony
